Louisiana voters on chronic "non calls"

Written by

non call la

New Orleans Saints fans and practically the whole state of Louisiana are up in arms.  And for good reason. It’s become the most talked about call in the history of NFL football.  Simply put-the Saints got robbed.

FASHION MAGA

To many of the radical leftists who inhabit the interconnected worlds of the media, Hollywood and the Democratic Party, the red hat with the words “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) has become the new similar of racism. According to left wing activist and actress Alyssa Milano, wearing the MAGA hat is akin to wearing a “white hood.”

Thus, supporting Donald Trump is the same thing as belonging to a terrorist group like the KKK. Never mind that the MAGA slogan was also used by former Presidents Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton, it is now incredibly racist because it was resurrected by Donald Trump. To the left, he is the epitome of evil.

Today, Gov. Edwards announced Chip Kline as the new executive assistant for coastal activities and board chair of the Coastal Restoration and Protection Authority (CPRA).

“We have reached a critical moment to address coastal restoration and hurricane protection in our state in a way in which we have never done before,” said Edwards. “In order to take full advantage of this opportunity, the CPRA must have a leader who recognizes the severity of the crisis we face, has a deep knowledge and understanding of the many complex issues that must be worked daily, and has a vision for our state. For the last 10 years, Chip has worked tirelessly on behalf of our working coast, and I have full confidence he is committed to accomplishing our goals vital for us to have a coast that we can continue to be proud of.”

It is now official; Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards is running for re-election. He released a video yesterday confirming the worst kept secret in Louisiana. It has been clear from the beginning of his first term that Edwards was running for re-election.

In his video, Edwards outlined his so-called accomplishments, but neglected to remind voters that he is a Democrat. Ironically, he is trying to have it both ways, pursuing liberal policies while masquerading as a conservative.

Nothing has changed, so nothing should change, despite the histrionics of the Gov. John Bel Edwards Administration.

Last week, Louisiana’s Revenue Estimating Conference met again with an attempt to update forecasting numbers on revenue. The figures produced get fed into the budget process, with Democrat Edwards’ executive plan for state spending in fiscal year 2020 due in about ten days.

What’s the difference between politics of today compared to politics of the past?

Oops.

Actually, politics, as everything else today, moves in warp speed, where yesterday seems like forever and what existed the day before has no relationship to tomorrow.

Which is why I asked three of the best know political minds in the region to discuss the evolution and changes in the political landscape.

It's official.

The Louisiana governor race has begun, kinda.

On one side, we have Republicans Congressman Ralph Abraham and wealthy Baton Rouge Republican businessman Eddie Rispone.

Today, on the other side, enters one Democrat John Bel Edwards, the current occupant of the governor's mansion who first won the seat in 2015.

Here is the campaign information which Bayoubuzz received this morning via email.

There are three ways to lose a game. First, you get beat by a better team. You can understand that and you go back to the drawing board to get better. Second, you can lose a game with poor execution or an ill-timed mistake.  But stuff happens and you can understand that. Third and the worst of all is when you do nothing wrong, your execution is good enough to win but you get it taken away from you. And that’s the one you can’t understand nor forgive. And that’s what happened to the Saints Sunday in the Superdome.

Ralph Abraham

Is the Congressman Ralph Abraham-salary attack, a bridge too far?  

How far and how long should a campaign pledge go?

In one respect, that is the issue as the Democratic-based American Bridge once again slammed Republican gubernatorial candidate, Ralph Abraham.

Does Mitch have the itch?

Former New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, that is.

Is he itching to put his name in the Democratic Party pool of wannabees who are launching presidential campaigns, it appears, now by the droves.  Over the past two weeks, starting with Elizabeth Warren, the names of presidential campaign “expectees” are jumping in or making it known that their respective campaigns are under serious consideration.
